The Pirates officially announced today that Chris Stewart has been activated from the disabled list and Tony Sanchez will be sent back to Triple-A.

News and notes: Trade rumors, Stewart/Sanchez, Lambo

This looked like it was going to be a mostly drama-free spring for the Pirates — and to this point, I would say it still has been — but recently a few issues have popped up that could cause the Bucs to make some last minute changes.

Burnett for Diego Moreno and Exicardo Cayones.)  We weren't going to offer Stewart a 2014 contract, so at midnight, he would become a free agent. Apparently, Brian...
